I picked up an '09 Escape Limited V6 FWD last Monday (8 Jun) when I was actually looking for a V6 sedan to replace my daily driver. Since I was actually wanting to get back in a truck but couldn't because of my work commute (500 miles a week would kill me at the pump), I was ecstatic when my wife brought the Escape to my attention and it seemed the V6 would offer moderate effeciency. So far I'm loving it! And my buddies (and the wife, too, actually) enjoy sending inappropriate texts to be read aloud by Sync while I'm driving...

Here are some links to my pages with pictures and details. Both sites contain the same information but some people use FQuick while others use Motortopia (I gave up Car Domain years ago...):

Heh, thanks. In my defense, it had been raining off-and-on all that week and while this was the first chance I had to snap a few quick pictures, I didn't yet have a chance to mow...

I live in Texas. If grass is green, it's good. :thumb: If it's brown, then I am wondering about the owner :roll: .

Disregard Squishy. He's jealous that you have green grass and not white snow :doh: .

I've seeded, re-seeded, fertilized, aerated, composted and have taken soil samples from 6 locations throughout my yard to Clemson's co-op to have analyzed, but no matter what, I can't get those pesky brown spots to go away. As you can see in Colleen's signature image, such is the way of SC...

I spent 21 years in the hills of northern WV/SE Ohio, so I've seen my share of snow.

Thanks for the warm welcome, y'all

I've seen the powder fly also. I was born, raised and lived in Cleveland, Ohio. Just south of Lake Erie, and it's winter snow "lake effect". ;) I like the Texas heat!

Cold out this way at the moment. :) :frozen: But its cosy in my spare room. That is where my computer and internet activity are pursued. Currently using a portable oil heater. The manufacturer's name is " DE LONGHI". :)

Liquid soap lightly sprayed on the brown spots (very lightly) before watering is supposed to help. The surfactant makes water "wetter" and more easily absorbed by roots.
